March 16 (Bloomberg) -- As much as 8 inches (20 centimeters) of snow may fall on the Washington area by tomorrow as a winter storm moves east out of the central U.S., just days before the start of spring.

New York City might see a few flakes as celebrants gather for St. Patrick’s Day festivities, although cold, dry air over the Northeast is expected to keep most of the snow to the south, said AccuWeather Inc. in State College, Pennsylvania.

“A winter full of nasty snow and ice will not end quietly as a gathering storm slides east and collides with a fresh cold air mass on Sunday into Monday,” Dan DePodwin, an AccuWeather meteorologist, wrote on the company’s website.

Winter weather advisories and storm warnings were posted from Arkansas to southern New Jersey, the National Weather Service said.

A warning that is in effect for Washington from 7 p.m. today until 2 p.m. tomorrow said a mix of rain and snow will turn to all snow as temperatures drop into the mid- to upper-20s Fahrenheit (about minus 3.8 to minus 1.1 Celsius).

Baltimore may get 3 to 6 inches and Philadelphia 2 to 4, the weather service said.

Spring begins March 20.
